  • Siddhartha Gautama , a Hindu prince who was born in Nepal in 563 B.C. His father meets a fortune teller who told him that his son was to either be a king or a religious leader. Siddhartha's father wants him to be a king
  • As a young man, Siddhartha grew up in royalty and luxury as a prince. Whenever he would go outside, his guards would scout ahead and make sure there were no suffering or sick people. They protected the prince from all sickness and suffering.
  • Siddhartha goes for a ride, without his guards, and he sees first a sick man leaning on a stick. Then, he sees a shrunken man by like that by disease, and then a man who has died. Last, he sees a homeless man who is content with himself, and Siddhartha thinks, "This man has nothing, but he is happy," He realizes he has only had the good in life, and joins the ascetics in the wild.
  • When he joined the group, he didn't eat well for five years. He decided to leave the ascetics. He realized that that was not the way to achieve a healthy mind. He goes to find a new way to focus on religion.
  • He meditates under the "Tree of Knowledge" for 49 days. During this meditation he faces many challenges, but remains there. He stays there until he has achieved enlightenment, a state of perfect wisdom. He comes back from liberation in order to teach everyone.
  • When he returns, he travels all over the world to teach anyone who will listen about Buddhism. He tells them the way to escape suffering. His purpose was to awaken the world. He died many years later, after teaching many people about Buddhism.
